ADO SQL Sensor



I saw this error after I created ADO SQL Sensor. "Access denied. Please check your Windows credentials. (code: PE095)"

I create some WMI sensors to test my windows credentials seems that it works fine.


I saw in this article that the problem is the windows credentials but as you can see WMI sensors are working. Can you please tell me what is the possible cause of this?

Which type of SQL database do you want to monitor? It looks like the Connection String isn't valid. Please have a look here for the correct syntax. Please consider that you need to use the credentials for the database in the connection string.

Best regards
